San Francisco to consider compensating Super Bowl vendors

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The city's Board of Supervisors are expected on Tuesday to consider whether to compensate $600 each to San Francisco sidewalk vendors who were displaced during the city's Super Bowl celebration. 
 
Supervisor Aaron Peskin says the money is a small way to give back to merchants and artists who suffered losses for roughly three weeks after they were booted for a free fan festival along the city's downtown waterfront. 
 

 
The measure would create a $100,000 compensation fund to start. It could apply to 247 permitted vendors, although Peskin doubts all would qualify.
